Dr. Eduard Gübelin Research Scholarship





The Dr. Eduard Gübelin Research Scholarship is an annual grant allocated to an innovative research project in the field of gemmology awarded by The Dr. Eduard Gübelin Association for   Research & Identification of Precious Stones – a non-profit entity of the Gübelin Group.


The scholarship is intended to provide funding and support to MSc/PhD students or post-doctoral researchers in the fields of earth sciences (mineralogy, geology, geochemistry), crystallography, chemistry, physics, material sciences, archaeology, biology, and related fields, to pursue a research project in the field of earth sciences or a related scientific field.

The successful project proposal has to be truly innovative, with demonstrable novel thinking; it must venture into new areas, test new concepts and methods, and hence contribute to the advancement of gemmological knowledge.

Eligibility
The scholarship is available to students and researchers at MSc, PhD or post-doctoral level. The minimum requirement for applicants is a BSc degree in earth sciences, chemistry, physics, material sciences or another hard science. The successful recipient of the grant, i.e. the applicant, must be a person rather than an institution or company. However, applicants are encouraged to submit project proposals that involve collaboration with a university or other research institute. Applicants may be no more than 40 years of age. Applications are welcome from individuals of any nationality.

No employment relationship will exist between the scholarship recipient and the Dr. Eduard Gübelin Association for Research & Identification of Precious Stones, the Gübelin Gem Lab or any other entity of the Gübelin Group. As such, the Association is not liable for social insurance costs.

The deadline for submission of applications is 30 June 2016.
